I'd first check out the FLAC files vs. the MD5 checksums on your machine. If a problem shows up, you'll have to correct it there. If no problem shows up, then it was something in the transfer that messed up. I think you should have received an e-mail detailing exactly which files were the problem, so you can re-transfer just those two. After the re-transfer, there should be a way on the contribution page to mark the problem as resolved, after which the contribution engine will kick in and try again.

I hope this helps.

Aloha,

Thanks, yes I did get the email detailing which tracks were a problem. So, if I check them on my machine and they are good I can just re-upload those two files. If they fail on my machine does that mean I should recreate the flac files, check the new ones, then try to upload again? Thanks for your help.

If they're good on your machine, yes, you should just have to re-upload them. (I've had this happen, usually when an upload of a file fails mid-way through.)

If the file aren't good on your machine, you need to figure out what went wrong. If could be the conversion to FLAC, in which you need to re-FLAC the files, and then re-generate the MD5s; after this, re-upload the re-FLACed files and the new MD5s. It could also have been the generation of the MD5s itself, in which case you'd need to re-generate the MD5s, and re-upload just them.
